The George Municipality hosted the South African Institution on Civil Engineering (SAICE) for a tour of some of the municipality’s significant water provision infrastructure last week. The visit was planned as the start of National Water Week activities and an Open Day at selected municipal water provision facilities in celebration of International Water Day on Saturday 21 March, which has since been postponed in light of the Coronavirus emergency measures. The tour started at the recently completed raised spillway and dam wall at the Garden Route Dam and included visits to the Outeniqua Waste Water Treatment Works, the Ultrafiltration Reuse Plant and the Pacaltsdorp Water Tower. “We have all our preparations in place and visited the sites in the company of SAICE President Fana Marutla and Acting CEO Steven Kaplan and are looking forward to hosting an Open Day as soon as possible,” said SAICE Southern Cape chairman Jan Brink.
